Urgent warning for BILLIONS of WhatsApp users – make sure you don’t get caught

WHATSAPP users have been warned that some will be banned from the messaging app from October.

A new media report has announced that WhatsApp will block users who are carrying an older iPhone device from using the platform over the next month.

WhatsApp requires users to update their phones to access the application.

It is said that the process has already started for some users who have received notifications asking them to update their phone.

A report in Business-Standard said: “The devices likely to bear the brunt are the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s.

“Especially iOS 10 and 11 are not widely used on iPhones. WhatsApp has stated in the past that iOS 12 or a newer software version will be required for iPhone users to continue using the platform on its help center website.”

Android users will also need to launch a software update and upgrade to OS 4.1 or later, the report said.

To update your iPhone, go to the Settings app and then press General.

In the next step select “Software Update” and your device should then meet the new requirements.

If you’re using an Android device, open Settings and select About phone.

Then press “Check for updates” and if an update is available, a button will appear that says “Update”.

After you choose Install Now, Restart, or Install System Software, you should be good to go.

WhatsApp also changed its messaging system last month to give users a longer amount of time to “undo” a text.

It was only possible to send a message after the first eight minutes, but how much time do you have now?
